O.M.G, July already? Today, I would normally share an Inspired by DIY post but due to some changes going on I decided to sit this one out. However, my gals are holding their own and went full throttle this month to create some of the most gorgeous home decor pieces inspired by Pottery Barn. I am not going to lie, I have been in Pottery Barn and a few times and walked out empty handed due to the store not being my type of get-up. But I might have a new perspective about this store after this month’s Inspired by DIY challenge. With that said, if you love Pottery Barn or just like to decorate check out these 8 different DIY’s inspired by the one and only Pottery Barn. There is something in this batch to appeal to all different types of home decor styles.
Kathryn from Up To Date Interiors created this beautiful PB inspired Blue Lotus Cachepot to house her greenery. How simple and refreshing is this. I find that the simplest projects are always my favorite projects to share. If you like ginger jars this Lotus Cachepot is reminiscent of the typical blue and white used in Chinoiserie decor.
For all of you who turn the other cheek when it comes to DIY, my lovely friend Sharon from Pretty Practical Home recreated her version of Pottery Barn’s Nickel Ring on a Stand in gold and black. She is a self-proclaimed NON-DIYer, but if you asked me, I think she has it in her. These rings look perfect and would look great in any home!
Iris from Iris Nacole most certainly knows how to make beach decor look so damn cool. If you follow along Domicile 37, you probably can tell I am not one to gravitate towards beach decor, but for some reason Iris is making me fall more in love with it. I like how made Pottery Barn’s Shell Wreath her by incorporating netting and different variations of shells.
Now this is a project I would love to recreate! Maggie Overby, made sure to put the funk into this one. This Harper Box inspiration in my opinion looks better than the original and is extremely easy to recreate. I love the orange and white. Head on over to check out her funky, fun decor and tutorial.
Palm leaves are all the rage this year and if you follow Monica from Monica Wants it you know greenery and flowers are a must in her home. Sometimes the simplest way to bring nature in is through art. This palm beach has hints of blue, lime, and yellow and would complement other colors on the rainbow spectrum pretty nicely if you ask me.
Rachael from This is Our Bliss, just moved into a new home and I am loving how all her dark colors are popping on her light walls. She decided to DIY a metal wall sculpture inspired by the Forged Metal Wall Sculpture from Pottery Barn and let’s just say, she knocked this DIY out of the park. The black pops on her wall and complements her style and furniture perfectly. If anyone else is interested in creating their own DIY version of this wall sculpture, they could easily do it with a few tools. Obviously, you’ll need to find some metal. If you’re upcycling this metal, you could consider using metal chop saws to cut and shape the metal, allowing you to easily weld it together, creating something similar to Rachael’s wall decoration.
I love a good gold leaf project! Tricia 1 of 2 of the gals behind the blog Suburban B*tches created some fun art inspired by PB’s Gold Leaf Coral Art. This project is definitely summer appropriate and will brighten up any home!
This is one of my favorite inspired by DIY’s, Marbleized Serve Platters from Ariel from PMQ for Two. I love how she chose to go with a fun bold color and played it wild. I definitely need to try to recreate these plates! So cool!
That is it for me today, I hope you enjoyed this month’s Inspired by DIY challenge. Next month we plan to take on Jonathan Adler’s style and play it so cool it is bad. LOL…haha! Until next time!…
